Hmmm, I was under the assumption wix makes the mopar filter. They do offer different grades of filters though. The cheaper ones don't have an internal bypass. The easiest way to tell the difference...

3.8 or 3.6? The 3.6 pentastars clatter like mad on start up. Chrysler calls it normal, but it's really a design flaw, IMHO.

There are a lot lighter options of Duratracs than the ones I had. If I remember right, the mounted procomps weighed about 80 lbs. (man,I caught hell from my wife for using the bathroom scale) I...

I had e rated duratracs, 295/65R18, and now have d rated procomps 285/75R16 (AT Xtremes) The d rated tires with the taller sidewall definitely ride better than the e rated, short sidewall tires.

Hey Andy, did you ever take a look at the trucklite led headlights. The light output is amazing. There is a divider which separates the high and low beam. The benefit of that is, when on low beam,...

The whole key to mileage is the weight of the wheels you chose. I regeared to 4.10s, and left the stock wheels on for a month. The mileage really didn't change much at all. When I put the heavy...

The air dam is designed to create a low pressure point behind the radiator. That helps pull air through the rad to aid in cooling. Not saying you'll have issues, just that there is a reason it's...

I can't believe the "Heart Attack Grille" doesn't serve poutine. It would fit into their menu nicely.
